See more: C#5
So here is the problem, the program that I am currentyl working on takes samples of ten via the serial port and writes them to a file.
Now however, I want to take three samples, so take first sample then wait a specific time, then execute the next sampl and so on. I have read that Threading.Sleep() effects events, My serial port is event driven is there a another method that exists that can either count down or up to a time??

If you do your work in a separate Thread[^] or a BackgroundWorker[^] you can use Thread.Sleep() without problems.
